CAR BURGLARIES are very difficult cases to solve due to the burglars usually leaving very little physical evidence behind after a car burglary has occurred. The crimes usually occur in business parking lots and residential streets and driveways at night, when it is less likely the thieves will be seen. Some of the most common places we have seen car burglaries are locations where people are doing some type of physical activity requiring them to leave their valuables behind in their vehicle. Burglars will target parking lots that include businesses, shopping malls, and gyms.

In order to help reduce the rise of becoming a victim of a car burglary we have provided some easy tips to follow. ALWAYS close your windows and lock your car doors. An open window or unlocked door is an invitation to a criminal.

APD on Keeping Your Home Secure

There are no such thing as burglar-proof homes. What there is, however, is using a burglar’s double criteria of speedy entry and not attracting attention—are homes that are too difficult to break in to.

The enemies of the burglar are time and attention. The longer it takes to enter and the more noise he makes increase his chances of being seen and caught. Homes not easily and quickly broken into are most often bypassed for easier targets.

"Fall Back" on November 1st

"Fall Back" on November 1st

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends on November 1st at 2:00 am which will actually be 1:00 am as we “fall back”. The mornings will get lighter, the evenings will get darker, and the days will get shorter. The best thing? We get an extra hour of sleep. The worst thing? We lose an hour of daylight each day making for short winter nights. When we “spring forward” it’s the opposite, we lose an hour of sleep in the transition, but we gain an extra hour of daylight each day, making for long summer days.

Preparing for Flu Season

Unfortunately, it’s that time of year again. Throughout 2015 The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been tracking the influenza virus in preparation for its peak activity and in early October started publishing data on the 2015-2016 flu season. While cautious in its predictions on this season’s severity, the CDC is urging everyone to get vaccinated, especially seniors.

It’s mid-October, and summer memories are fading alongside the leaves. The strength of the New Mexico sun weakens by the evening and sweaters are serving purposes higher than fashion. Winter, and all its joy and sorrow, is coming.

We had blast last weekend with Palmilla Senior Living hosting our first ever Up, Up, and Away! Alzheimer’s Association fundraiser. Everyone in attendance, from young children to residents of the facility, got the chance to encounter balloons up close and marvel at their beauty and size.

We would like to thank Palmilla Senior Living for hosting the event, the Civil Air Patrol for sharing their balloons, and all who came early to support an organization dedicated to eradicating a tragic disease.

The Benefits of Strength Training


If a miracle treatment claiming to reverse the physical effects of aging were to arise would you pursue it? Most would respond with a resounding “yes”, but they would also assume it to be either highly expensive or farcical. However, a “treatment” does exist that is comparatively inexpensive and has been proven to build strength, lower body fat, reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes, arthritis, and depression all the while preventing dangerous falls that can cause serious injury through improved balance and coordination.

It goes by many names but is most commonly referred to as strength training. And of all methods to curb the effects of aging, it should be at the top of the list.
